2011 Forest River Georgetown 378

We are on the brink of purchasing a 2011 Forest River Georgetown 378 (one owner) from a dealership in Texas. Is there anything specific we should be asking and anything specific we should be looking for?

Well, the good news is that, most likely, the previous owner took care of all of the little things that go wrong with a new coach. I'd go through every button and function that the coach has to make sure it works. Look at all of the slide out seals, climb on the roof and look for issues. Take it out for a spin to make sure it rides good. Get the dealer to give you a full tank of gas as part of the deal.

Is it a 378 triple slide?
Is it an XL model?
How many miles?
Check the hydraulics system for lines that have bubbles or any leaks.
Take it for a ride on the highway at 55-60 mph and see how easy it is to keep straight down the road.
Check the oil to see if it is new or black and old.

Here is a link on how much it is worth used. This is for a 378TS XL model.
Just fill in the options and mileage and you will see a price. You may have to start over and add your zip code.

Get up on the roof and check to see if the fiberglass has any cracks in it.

if you make the deal have them throw in a warranty, they can purchase one very cheap.

2011 Forest River Georgetown

Thanks everyone for your comments. Although we like the Georgetown I think we are probably going another way. The Georgetown is in Texas, about 20 hours from us and we would be buying it sight unseen. If it were in NC ... We're looking at a 2o11 Coachmen Encounter that is in NC. We don't have to buy one now so we can walk away and look around until we find exactly what we want - or exactly what we can afford!
